Default Re: Spouse medical insurance??????

You need to obtain your own insurance that will cover you for costs that Medicare pays for them. Supplementary insurance thay have may or may not cover you depending on their plan. I have Blue Cross insurance to cover my basic medicare costs. My husband's insurance will only pay out for dental, medication etc if I'm a permanent resident, although they changed their tune on this a few times and basically told him they do not normally check if I'm a permanent resident when he submits claims on my behalf.

Blue Cross plan costs $4 per day. (I'm in my late 20's, on no medication and have no medical complaints.) It's an alternative kind of travel insurance as most travel insurance policies from the UK will only pay out if you return to the UK.

Hope this info is of use to you.
